Dating While Social Distancing

So as we all know, the past couple of weeks have been crazy. Al has been working from the time he wakes up to the time he goes to sleep, and I, like most of the parents in America, have been thrown into instant homeschooling. Lots of schedule adjusting and figuring things out and worrying […]

Dirty Thirty

I have been meaning to write about this for a while, but unsurprisingly, I’m getting to it about a month later than I planned. Anywho, Al turned 30 last month!! I have almost known him half of his life! I wanted to throw him a big party to celebrate, but he really doesn’t like celebrating […]

That Time We Got Engaged

Two years ago today, the hott guy in this pic asked me to be his wife. I had just had brain surgery 3 weeks prior and started radiation 4 days before. Felt so gross from weight gain, weight loss from steroids/surgery, being skinny with a belly lol. Felt so crazy from roid-rages (be grateful if […]

New Tattoo

Hubster and I decided for Valentine’s Day gifts this year we would both get phoenix tattoos. This tattoo means more to me than any other I’ve gotten so far. It represents the past few years, which have been both the hardest and best years of my life. Joy after depression. Good health after malignant cancer. […]

Happy Birthday, Babe

To my husband, Al: Today I wanted to do something super awesome for you. Clearly I am restricted due to the recent c-section… But even though we are spending the day at home, I hope that you have a great day, enjoy your gumbo & cheesecake, and enjoy the best birthday gift you have ever […]

Grateful

Two years ago, I had recently ended a long-term on and off relationship, found out I had to have another brain surgery, was told the surgery might not work, that I might be paralyzed, might have to freeze my eggs, might have to have chemo (which might not work for the type of tumor that […]
